Opportunity Drawing

Dark Skies and Caribbean Sun
Win a week-long tour of the British Virgin Isles, on a private catamaran! 
All you need to do is buy a ticket for our opportunity drawing. Tickets are $50 each. 


This is your chance to win the ultimate tropical getaway while supporting Clark Planetarium! Bask in the sun on a one-week tour of the British Virgin Isles on a private catamaran named the STARGAZER. You and your guests will enjoy three private bedrooms/baths to accommodate up to six people. 

The Stargazer is docked at the Scrub Island Resort marina where you and guests will stay the first night, taking advantage of all of the resort’s amenities. The next morning sit back, relax, and enjoy the cool breeze as you set sail to snorkel and explore volcanic islands and spectacular reefs. This area boasts some of the darkest, least light-polluted skies in the world.

 Chartering this incredible adventure on your own would cost over $10,000. Don’t miss this extremely rare opportunity to relish in pure luxury!
